The objectives of the study is to synthesize the available information related to design fires in road tunnels and to identify gaps in that information in order to provide a foundation for design guidance. A design fire is characterized by a number of parameters including the temperature, fire heat release rate (FHRR), fire growth rate, fuel load, and products of combustion.
